RESIDENTIAL ADULT SERVICES
Our goal is to offer opportunities for people with lifelong disabilities to reach their full potential. All Adult Day employment programs are operated in the least restrictive environment and are licensed by the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs and/or the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, as well as, the Colleton County Board of Disabilities and Special Needs. Participants enjoy being a part of and contributing to their communities and feeling that they are valuable and important.
Examples of Employment
Local opportunities where participants earn both dignity and a paycheck:
The Colleton Industries Adult Day Program provides the support, assistance and supervision necessary to develop basic work and social skills. Training is provided in a sheltered environment conducive to the needs of the individual participant. Work contracts are established with local businesses that provide realistic training opportunities and earning potential.
Mobile Work Crews
Mobile Work crews are based from Colleton Industries, but are available to do a variety of services in the local community. Mobile Work Crews are supervised and have all the necessary equipment to complete jobs such as yard maintenance, litter control, housekeeping, vehicle cleaning, moving furniture, etc. Mobile Work Crew is an employment program that provides a short-term, readily available, on-site labor force to a business or individual at a competitive cost. All payroll and personnel matters are handled by CCBDSN.
